ONT, Ontology’s native utility token, will join Fantom’s DeFi ecosystem as collateral for minting synthetics, including fUSD.
ONT holders will be able to use fMint to access fUSD and other synthetics, which can be used with other Fantom DeFi products.
Specifically, fLend allows you to lend & borrow assets, while fTrade lets you trade them.
If you want to go long BTC (without losing exposure to your ONT collateral), mint fUSD against your ONT in fMint, and use the fUSD to buy fBTC (synthetic BTC) in fTrade. Sell the fBTC for fUSD later to repay the minted debt. If you want to go short BTC (without losing exposure to your ONT collateral), mint fBTC against your ONT in fMint, sell the fBTC in fTrade. Rebuy fBTC later to repay the minted debt.Once you’ve repaid any outstanding minted debt, you can unlock your collateral to withdraw.
